Sealing Shower Door Base to Plate

Postby pintxo_21 » Mon Oct 22, 2018 8:31 pm

Hi all,

What is the best way of sealing the shower door bottom to the plate? I have applied silicon but it did not seal the gap since it is very small. I was thinking in using some sealing strips (i.e. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Polycell-SSBKW ... WSJ0EH6H38)

Picture attached.

Thank you very much.

Andres

I would have said...silicone. What is wrong with applying masking tape to the area to mask off the areas you don't want to get silicone on, then apply a bead to the gap. It doesn't need to go in the gap, just seal it over.

Don't apply too much, then smooth off with a wet finger...

Hi, I used silicone but it did not stick well to the frame, so i decide to try something stronger, I used Evo-Stik 'Sticks Like Sh*t' Sealant Clear and it worked.
